Ph.D. molecular geneticist and jack-of-all trades with both academic and industial scientific and commercial experience offering lessons in the life sciences in Northern NY.

Methodology

I received my Ph.D.in molecular genetics studying mRNA 3' end processing and went on to post-doc fellowships in virology and cancer biology. I left academia to work in product management to manage plasticware used in the life sciences. I would like to provide my experience to help fill gaps in your knowledge and comfort using the various tricks and techniques I have picked up over the past ~30 years.

Background

I am new to formal tutoring, so I anticipate being reactive to your needs and to openly communicate with you about your questions and concerns. In my product management role, I did provide solutions-based closure to open complaints and application issues.
